Cray, John Dickens, Nicholas Goade, Malcolm Gossett, Peter Hames, Gerald Jennerton, Algernon Knox, Ambrose LavendaleJohn T.

Commodore B. Jasen is a trim and precise-looking elderly gentleman who appears to the world to be a multi-millionaire and member of the haut ton. But he is in fact the dangerous master criminal Samuel Lebworthy, a gang leader feared on the Continent and in America. Unfortunately for Lebworthy, he kills off Ned Loyd, another criminal, and that brings Lebworthy and his gang into conflict with the steely adventuress Caroline Loyd, Ned’s sister and a notorious thief in her own right, and that conflict eventually leads to Lebworthy’s defeat and ruin.
